We may be a little late to Data Privacy Day but we are looking ahead at what a big year for privacy 2022 will be! Below is a timeline of some of the privacy events on the horizon that are on our radar.
What is happening right now?
Schrems II and Google Analytics: The Austrian DPA’s recent decision regarding the use of Google Analytics calls into question any use of a US analytics service where a transfer of users’ data from the EU to the US occurs. Our automated Data Transfer Scanner identifies and sorts Schrems II risk of data flows for further legal handling, including the use of Google Analytics and similar vendors.
Our downloadable report and module for Android gives organizations the information they need to meet their Google Play and disclosure requirements, including:
- Identifying all parties collecting data (as well as which SDKs are integrated into the app);
- Identifying all data types, including personal information/data (at both a technical – e.g., hashed, encoded, fingerprinting, GAID, etc. – and traditional level); and
- Determining how each data type is used (e.g., App Functionality and/or Personalization)
- California, Virginia and Colorado:The CPRA, which largely expands the CCPA, Colorado and Virginia privacy laws go into effect in 2023.
- Deprecation of third-party cookies: Chrome is projected to phase out the use of third-party cookies starting in 2023, causing many stakeholders to rely on persistent identifiers (hashed or otherwise) which will only raise the stakes in the land of privacy.
We can help with your state law privacy efforts, put a roadmap in place to prepare for deprecation of third-party cookies, and assist in identifying which data is shared/collected from your website and mobile app to ensure relevant agreements are executed and any unintended data collection/transmission is mitigated.
If you want to discuss any privacy concerns you have or see how NT Analyzer could help you specifically, please let us know and we are happy to make some time.
